NC Schools closed till May 15th

North Carolina public schools will remain closed through May 15 in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.

Cooper extended the closures on Monday to May 15 and announced that he’s asked state education leaders and state lawmakers to work on a plan to educate students for the rest of the school year.

The closure means North Carolina students will be at home for two months. More focus is expected to be placed now on how schools can provide remote learning for students while they’re at home.
